I had a very fortunate opportunity growing up to be able to travel to some really amazing places with my family. Travel has become a big part of who I am and fuels my aspirations. So much so, that I started my travel life, post school, in the airline industry! Although a great job for someone who loves to travel, I realized that it did not allow me to come home to my family as often as I'd like. Because of that, I decided to move back home and join a local travel agency in my hometown. With travel so rooted in me, I knew I needed something to keep myself very much in the travel world. I quickly found my passion for mystery trips and group travel/destination weddings. With the help of my inspiring mentors, Up in the Air Travels blossomed.
For 22 years, my parents have been doing surprise anniversary trips for one another. Every year, they take turns planning and keeping the entire trip a secret from the other, right up until the day they leave. They usually give each other certain clues along the way like sharing a riddle or buying a swimsuit or warm gloves to give ideas on how to pack. I have found an admiration for the love, trust and adventure they share and give to one another. I created Up in the Air Travels to allow others to feel this same sense of adventure, trust, love and admiration.
